Being an Engineer in Reliability means, the world is counting on you.


This book encapsulates our Reliability Engineering for Maintenance Domain within our Uptime Elements Framework 


In this book we go over all the key elements an Engineer would tackle and emphasize what skills you already have -

  • Critical Analysis
  • Root Cause Analysis
  • Reliability Strategy and Management
  • Development
  • Displaying Integrity
  • Supporting Others on their Reliability Journey

This book provides guidance in answering answer the following questions:

  1. Where should we start with our improvement effort?
  2. What improvement tools best apply to the opportunities we identify?
  3. Which ones provide the greatest return for the least amount of investment?

Most engineers are familiar with failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), a technique for improving machinery and equipment reliability by analyzing its functional requirements, failure modes and effects, and then taking appropriate action better manage those potential failures. However, in using these principles, this book does not focus on a given machine and its failure modes, but rather focuses on the business, specifically analyzing a production line or process at an operating to determine where the major business opportunities are relative to the gross profit associated with improved production, or reducing any extraordinary costs.

The purpose of this book is to illustrate the methodology, and then provide numerous examples of how the technique can be applied in varying circumstances, helping you prioritize your efforts.
